The PNW meets NOLA

I was more than stoked when I was asked by Christie Froom of Christie Froom Studios to co-shoot a wedding at Crescent Park on the New Orleans Riverfront. The bride and groom were obviously going to be amazing, because only the hippest of people have weddings in the New Orleans Bywater District, one of my favorite places EVER. And if shooting at Crescent Park wasn't enough, I was assigned to photograph the groomsmen before the wedding at the legendary, Hotel Provincial, one of the finest, most beautiful hotels in the French Quarter. Let's just say that this was going to be one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever had the pleasure of capturing.

An excerpt from i like you by sandol stoddard warburg
(Laura chose this reading)
I like you because
I don’t know why
but Everything that happens is nicer with you.
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you.
It must have been lonesome then.
I like you because because because
I forget why I like you, but I do.
So many reasons.
On the 4th of July
I like you because it’s the 4th of July. On the fifth of July,
I like you too. If you and I had some drums
and some horns and some horses,
If we had some hats and some flags
and some fire engines,
We could be a HOLIDAY.
We could be a CELEBRATION.
We could be a WHOLE PARADE.
See what I mean?
Even if it was the 999th of July,
Even if it was August,
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November,
Even if it was no place particular in January,
I would go on choosing you.
And you would go on choosing me.
Over and over again.
That’s how it would happen every time.
I don’t know why.
I guess I don’t know why I really like you.
Why do I like you.
I guess I just like you.
I guess I just like you.
because I like you.
